Holy Innocents


A song for Christmas


Newbury Christian Musician

Tess Hood.

In the late 1800s, the poet Christina Rossetti wrote the famous poem

“A Christmas Carol”, (In the bleak mid-winter.)

Following the birth of her third child, Newbury musician and songwriter Tess Hood wrote a melody to the poem Holy Innocents, a lesser known work of Christina’s about the birth of Jesus.

With the help of extremely talented Newbury based musician Max Hunt a beautiful and moving lullaby was produced.

This Christmas Eve, just pause for a moment and enjoy a time of true peace about the birth of the Prince of Peace; The Holy Innocent.

From the album: From Broken to Bethany.
